What travelers say:

St. Croce's Cathedral, standing in the heart of the Polish capital, Warsaw, is closely linked to the fate of the city and the Polish nation as a whole. Only a deep understanding of the city and the history of the nation will know the silent prayers in the cathedral. The Church of the Holy Cross is one of Warsaw's most famous churches, because it contains the heart of Chopin, Poland's greatest pianist. The church was once a place where Chopin lived. The heart is now preserved in the second column on the left side of the church, which is decorated with Chopin's life.

Additional Information

Introduction

The Church of the Holy Cross stands in the heart of Warsaw, the capital of Poland, and is one of Warsaw's famous Baroque churches. Poland became the first target of Hitler in the Second World War. In 1944, the Polish soldiers and civilians took refuge in the church which served as a fortress and held an anti-Nazi uprising. This famous church was completely destroyed and became the hall of the dead during the assault on Poland. The Church of the Holy Cross is now a Baroque building which was rebuilt in the year 1946. The heart of the musician Chopin was sealed in the pillar of the church.
